“After Siddhartha Gautama Realized BuddhaNature and was invited strongly to get up from beneath that Bodhi Tree …”
Yes, of course He had felt in Spirit-Nirvanic-Impersonal-Bliss to simply sit and without any thought, especially of moving Himself.
However, as one of the many legends goes, surrounding the why? question of His getting HimSelf up and becoming the walking-teacher until His physical bodily death, which He also made a teaching-moment with those present, Lord Brahma HimSelf made a personal visit to the sitting in Bliss One under that Bodhi Tree at that time, to say that not only did then, and likely for many human Ages to come, humanity need His, The Buddhas’ teaching and moving amongt them on foot presence to initiate a long-after His passing from that body helpful to countless ones teaching-tradition; also, Lord Brahma in this legend is recalled to have shared, so very much also did the demi-gods of Lord Indra’s Devachan or Heavenly planets’ realm need Now-then this Teaching of BuddhaNature.
Another one of many legends states that the first place upon his lifelong thereafter walkabout and teach about the nature of self-suffering and how to alleviate same, leaving for the next soon-enough in human life history on Earth Avatar and also LIFE-Major complementary with the Buddha ever since, the Master and Christed One (not as with BuddhaNature at all the one and only one ever) Jesus or Jeshua to teach of GODNATURE in the Rasa of ‘The Father’ GOD-Trancendental as ever-With all of we also as ‘The Son’ of self-made-mostly ‘prodigal self-natures’ to be redeemed by going through the first five Initiations as That Master’s Life Mission demonstrated as done-perfectly for all this world’s dwellers with eyes to see and ears to hear, etc., one of the Gautama The Buddha legends has him giving his first teaching-talk to a group of his previous in that life fellow ascetic yogi’s who were sparely living off the land at that moment in time at the public deer park in Sarna, India.
Those ascetic yogi’s at first and for some time did their ‘bests’ to ignore and be dismissive of their old fellow renunciate yogi practitioner who they all felt had ‘fallen’ and had for certain walked away from their company and path after having overheard, while taking some drink from the river on its bank, as another legend goes, a musician-boatsman teaching his stringed-instrument learning-to-play-well student came by within Siddhartha Gautama’s earshot, and in what that teacher had said to the student, Gautama realized at-once His true yogic practitioner-calling to what He later termed The Middle Way between all practically infinite ‘pairs of opposites,’ and simultaneously realized that renunciation alone, nor any extremes of self-denial or self-indulgence were NOT The Way, as He heard in the master musician-boatsman’s words to the student, to “neither make too tight the strings in self-tuning one’s instrument, as they will break; nor tune-them too loosely, for then they will not make sound or allow one to play them at all well.”
So, as this legend goes, the acestic sadhaks bro.’s were feeling all this past-imagined-wrongs done them by Siddhartha Gautama, and yet more simply invitingly powerful was the Light, or “Tej”, pouring-out, so to say, from Gautama’s head and crown chakra, so they sort-of composed themselves and agreed to give an experimental-listen to Gautama Who was indicating that He had some Good News of value to share with them; and so He gave, according to this legend, His first Teaching of BuddhaDharma in the spontaneous form from Him of what has come to be well-circulated all over this Good Earth as The Four Nobel Truths.
In brief, those four go something like this:
- There is self-suffering or ducca, and to understand the Nature of this suffering is to be wise and with practice liberated.
- Suffering of oneself is caused primarily always by attachment of the ‘mental body’ habitual and unSelf-Aware-of this fact.
- In order to undo one’s own self-suffering and the attendant thereby human propensity to also inflict suffering or try to upon other, one needs to undo one’s own human complexity of one’s own attachment of mind to forms in flux as though to somehow impossibly arrest and keep them ‘as is’ so to say; for one’s, also passing and in flux, temporal self-identities.
- Eight-limbed or eight-phased Ashtanga or Raja Yogic Practice of the Mind’s Liberation (later restated so clearly in Patangali’s Yoga Sutras, which are also composed in the same Impersonal teaching mood and mode as BuddhaDharma) ~ a wholly-extension of the waking up from the dream dharma association [TM] via TRO aka Timothy Robert Onucki, copyright @3:57pm EDST USA @08840 (in briefer brief: 1) There is suffering, 2) Suffering is caused by the attachment of mind, 3) To undo suffering, undo attachment of mind, and 4) The method for practice to accomplish this feat offered by Sidhartha Gautama Buddha).
